What is Network


What is a Network?

A network consists of two or more computers that are linked in order to share resources (such as printers and CDs), exchange files, or allow electronic communications. The computers on a network may be linked through cables, telephone lines, radio waves, satellites, or infrared light beams.

The two basic types of networks include:

  • Local Area Network (LAN)
  • Wide Area Network (WAN)
